Cancer treated better in the US than in Russia

These are the conclusions of scientists at a conference on breast cancer. Expert in the field of breast cancer, chief oncologist of Russia Mikhail Davydov informed scientific community: Russian science have something to aim for. The effectiveness of treatment of cancer in our country two times lower than in the United States.

In America the figure is 95%. In Russia heal only 50% of newly diagnosed tumors. This is due to lack of adequate funding area that does not allow time to determine cancer. In addition, new drugs, which are commonly used in the United States, in Russia is not yet available.
